Uxbridge, dearest Uxbridge. Balcony Shirts was born in Uxbridge, and our shop is in Uxbridge. Before we had the shop we worked from Uxbridge industrial Estate. We live in Uxbridge. We go out in Uxbridge. You get the idea.
Our relationship with Uxbridge is very much like the relationship one has with a mother, ie: YOU’RE allowed to be rude about her and take the Mickey out of her but if anyone else does there is HELL TO PAY. With that in mind, let us take you on a tour of some of Uxbridge’s beauty spots.
Number 3. The Chiltern View Pub. We’re not entirely sure how long The Chiltern View on Cowley Road has been closed down, but it seems like a very, very long time. It used to have a reputation for being a little, shall we say, “fruity”. It looks nice, though.
Number 2. Behind The Pavillions. This really is Uxbridge’s little secret paradise, tucked away next to the “Curly Whirly Car Park” and behind the Raj Tandoori restaurant, when life gets too much you’ll often find holiday-makers here enjoying a the sights and maybe an alcoholic beverage.
Number 1. “The Bit Next To Kwik-Fit”. Finally, it’s the part of Uxbridge that locals know as “The Bit Next To Kwit-Fit”. Reminiscent of scenes from the movie The Hurt Locker, not even a improvised explosive device to take the edge off it’s beauty.
If you have any other beauty spots that you think we should know about, please put your suggestions in the comments section below and we’ll endeavor to include them in part 2.
